The Red List in the World of Darkness is a group of vampires (or other supernatural creatures) that have been deemed so dangerous by the Camarilla, that it requires its members to hunt down and destroy them. The term Anathema is usually used for all vampires which are subject to a Blood Hunt, but sometimes the term is also used for the vampires on the Red List only. On the other hand, Alastors are on the other hand the vampires entrusted by the Camarilla to hunt to vampires on the Red List. An Alastor can claim a Trophy for the destruction of an Anathema, e.g. major clan boons, allowance to make progeny or being taught a specific, otherwise an obtainable discipline.
In 1994, the list (as presented in the book “Kindred Most Wanted“) included the following thirteen creatures (twelve vampires and one werewolf)
- Kemintiri (Follower of Set)
- Petaniqua (Baali)
- Valerius Maior (Tremere antitribu, Infernalist)
- Tariq the Silent (Assamite)
- Count GermaineGermaine (Brujah antitribu)
- Alexis Sorokin (Ravnos)
- Ferox (Gargoyle)
- Dylan (Ventrue antitribu, Infernalist)
- Ossian (Fianna werewolf and independent ghoul)
- Enkidu the Noah (Gangrel)
- Genina (Samedi)
- Rabbat (Nosferatu)
- Angelo (Blood Brother)
In fact, Kemintiri was the cause for the Camarilla’s creation of the Red List in 1930. After she had killed the Ventrue Justicar Michaelis, she took his place, but was discovered and exposed by the Tremere.
But not all the vampires are still on the Red List:
- Genina was captured by Lucinde shortly after Lucinde was appointed as Ventrue Justicar in 1998. (Reference: Children of the Night)
- In 1999, the massacre of the Tremere antitribu left Valerius Maior only a shadow of his former self. (Reference: Chaining the Beast)
- Petaniqua was destroyed by Alastor John Trent (a.k.a. John Trent), who was placed on the Red List himself for the alleged diablerie of Petaniqua (Reference: Gehenna)
- Angelo was caught and staked (destroyed?) in Milwaukee. (Reference: Nights of Prophecy).
- Tariq the Silent has been reduced to 13th Generation, lost his guardian spirit, has become suicidal and murdered the Seraph Dujah. (Reference: Children of the Night, Clanbook Assamite Revised).
Other vampires (and werewolf) in Vampire: the Eternal Struggle are:
- Jayne Jonestown (Brujah antitribu)
- Mata Hari (Ravnos)
- Chavi Oraczko (Ravnos)
- Sundervere, The Devil Brahmin (Followers of Set)
- Lord Fianna (Malkavian)
- Ambrogino Giovanni (ADV) (Giovanni)
- Lorenzo Detuono (Giovanni)
- Qawiyya el-Ghaduba (Salubri antitribu)
- Jamal (Assamite)
- Samuel Haight (Werewolf)
The author Matt McElroy is working on book called Red List for V20, and in late 2011/early 2012, he was trying to put together a new Red List. His latest list included the following vampires:
- Kementiri (Followers of Set) – Trophy Clan: Ventrue
- Petaniqua (Baali) – Trophy Clan: Malkavians
- Valerius Maior – Trophy Clan: Tremere
- Alexis Sorkin/Danya (Ravnos) – Trophy Clan: Toreador
- Ferox (Gargoyle) – Trophy Clan: Nosferatu
- Dylan (Ventrue antitribu) – Trophy Clan: Tremere
- Rabbat (Nosferatu) – Trophy Clan: Nosferatu
- Madame Guil (Toreador) – Trophy Clan: Toreador — New!
- Jayne Jonestown (Brujah antitribu) – Trophy Clan: Brujah — New!
- Patricia “Tyler” Bollingbroke (Brujah) – Trophy Clan: Ventrue — New!
- Cesar Holfield (Caitiff) – Trophy Clan: Tremere — New!
- Count Germaine (Brujah) – Trophy Clan: Toreador
- Enkidu (Gangrel antitribu) – Trophy Clan: Gangrel
Quite nice that all of the vampires are already used in VtES, but some of those would mandate an advanced version of that vampire (where possible), which would include Madame Guil, Tyler and Cesar Holfield.
